2016 – The Year for Shaking

“This is what the Lord Almighty says, ‘ In a little while I will once more shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and dry land. I will shake all nations and the desired of all nations will come and I will fill this house with glory,’ says the Lord Almighty.” Haggai 2:6-7

On July 7, 2016 a replica of Noah’s ark built to Biblical specifications opened to the public in Williamstown, Kentucky. Built by Ken Ham, it was designed to demonstrate the authenticity of the Biblical account by providing a tangible representative of what is described in the Genesis account.

It can be no accident that the number one name for boys and girls this year is Noah and Olivia. Noah which of course is the name of the man (and his family) who God saved from the world wide deluge in the book of Genesis and Olivia, which means “olive” …. and is reminiscent of the olive tree so prominent in the Bible whose fruit is harvested by the shaking of the tree and of the olive branch the dove returned with when dry land once again appeared on the earth.

“And God said, This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come. I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. Whenever I  bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life. Whenever the rainbow now appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth.” Genesis 9:12-16

Yes, the wickedness of that day was so great that God had to act. So wicked had men become that God was grieved he had ever created them.

“The Lord saw how great mans wickedness on the earth had become and that every inclination  of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time. The Lord was grieved that he had made man on the earth and his heart was filled with pain.  So the Lord said, I will wipe mankind , whom I have created from the face of the earth –men and animals, and creatures that move along the ground and birds of the air — for I am grieved that I have made them. But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.”

It would not be hard to argue that the world is once again descending in to violence, chaos and outright wickedness. Each man doing what is right in his own eyes …..  which by its very definition is ….. PRIDE. The rainbow God designed as a symbol of his grace and his covenant now a symbol for that which God hates most …. pride …. which when you think about it is the root of all sin. Especially, when it comes to defying God’s natural order for creation. The design of men and women and the institution of marriage.

Yes, there is a great shaking coming. The effects of which by the signs of the times may well take place before the year is out. Its believed by many that Nibiru or Planet X  was the instrument God used in Noah’s time for producing the flood. A rogue planet or dwarf star that is even now (some say)  making its way back into our solar system in order to bring forth the Revelation 6:12 events.

“I watched as he opened the 6th seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as late figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. The sky receded like a scroll rolling up and every mountain and island was removed from its place.” Revelation 6:12-14

+++++++++++++++++++++++

The olive and the olive tree are prominent figures in the Bible. These trees can often live for as much as one thousand years. As you can see from the photo at the top of the page the trunk often becomes twisted and gnarled …. reaching a circumference as much as 20 feet in diameter. In the Genesis account the waters of the flood reached a depth of 20 feet above the highest mountain allowing plenty of space for the ark to bob about on the surface of the water without becoming grounded. A fact that I find compelling for it was the olive branch the dove returned with that signaled to Noah that the waters were receding and that dry land had appeared. A symbol of God’s grace in allowing a new start.

It may be debatable but it stands to reason that the cross that Jesus was crucified on was made of olive wood. Like the pure olive oil (shaken and pressed down) that burned night and day in the Tabernacle Jesus likewise was pressed in to the wood of the cross he was nailed to in order that (like the ark) he could be lifted above his creation in order that our salvation might be secured.

I hope if nothing else that you take away from this article the sobering fact that there is a great shaking coming.  As the Bible declares, every mountain and every island will be moved from its place. The world of Noah’s day scoffed ….. until the rains came … .just as people today will scoff ….. until places like my beloved Hawaii disappear in to the depths of the sea …..

I believe with my whole heart that God has allowed Ken Ham to create the most accurate representation of the ark ever made – for our day and for our time. This is a reality check.  For all scoffers, all nay sayers – every one who wants to (by virtue of television and media)  can now see that the Biblical account is true. That the ark was a reality and more than capable of doing what it was designed for …. the survival of 8 people and the preservation of all living creatures necessary for repopulating the earth after it was destroyed.. It is not a myth, it is not a fairy tale. It is real. And testifies to the truth of the Bible and the reality of the shaking and the judgment that is ahead.

“First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come scoffing and following their own evil desires. They will say, ‘Where is the coming he promised? Ever since our Fathers died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation. But they deliberately forget that long ago by God’s word the heavens existed and the earth was formed out of water and by water. By these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed. By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.” 2 Peter 3:3-7

As the Bible says “today is the day of salvation”. Jesus is the only ark of safety for what is ahead. If you have never received Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you can do so now. Just repeat this simple prayer – believing and trusting with a sincere heart that it will be heard and accepted by the Father.

“Father, I come to you in Jesus name. And I confess to you that I am a sinner. I have tried to do things my way all of my life but I now turn my life over to you. I ask by the power of the Holy Spirit that you come in to my life and change me so that I might be conformed to your image not mine. I ask Father by your grace and mercy and by the precious blood of Jesus to save me and to forgive me for all my sin. In Jesus name, Amen!”

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem they shall prosper who love thee” Psalm 122:6

How Did Jesus Respond To Tragic Events?

Stephen McAlpine

Now there were some present at that time who told Jesus about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mixed with their sacrifices. (Luke 13:1)

Unexpected tragic events.  They’re certainly not new.  No, not new, but definitely more documented these days. Technology is certainly fulfilling its hyped promise of bringing us closer together. Be careful what you wish for, that’s all I have to say.

So we’re right there looking at selfies in a French rock concert just before a terrorist attack that leaves a hundred dead. A Snapchat videos reveals the confused look on a young woman’s face in a crowded night club the moment she realises, tragically, that the pop-pop-pop sound is not the music and that something is terribly wrong. 49, including her, dead.

And if it’s not video, it’s deeply disturbing black box recorder audio of 140 people screaming out “Oh my God” in a variety of tongues of…

A Nation In Disconnect

Image result for old phone off the hook

Hello …. hello …. is any one there?

June 12, 2016.  Another date to add to a growing list of dates as the nation goes in to mourning once again. An unspeakable tragedy no matter what community it took place in when innocent people are killed. And be assured, it could just as well have been a church, a school, a business or a theme park as it was a gay nightclub. And next time (it) will be. For these days there always is …. a next time …. and, there is no one who is not a potential target for this particular brand of hate.

Each day as I read the headlines, it becomes more obvious. The nation and the world at large is rapidly descending in to madness. And if you think this isn’t true …. you are sincerely deluding yourself, my friend. America has not only lost touch with her roots …. a train which left the station now so long ago that it hardly matters ….. humanity, is deteriorating from it means to be even human in its most basic sense ……and, this is the rotten egg which is set to upturn the whole thing.

For you see, even things like abortion (talk about the killing of the innocent) is now so far gone ….. is such a river that if even reversed today can never remove the stain. We have so become a culture of death that there is nothing left but for us to be what we already are. A fact, the fashion industry clued in to quite some time ago as they foisted the idea on an unsuspecting public that somehow or other dressing in skull and bones was somehow hip. The dead dressing the dead.  Well, even that is yesterday’s news.

How about this? In Oregon, it is now legal for one to be neither male nor female but non-binary. In other words, not identifying with either sex.  What is happening to people is so bizarre that it almost defies comprehension. Did we really think that we could remove God without something or someone else moving in and taking up residence?  The biggest mistake people make is not understanding that there is a war on for our souls. And with God removed, there is a vacuum just waiting to be filled. And from the looks of things that is exactly what has happened. The vacuum has been filled.

Did you read about the opening ceremony of the Gotthards tunnel in Switzerland? Openly demonic. Or the new trend to tattoo ones self with the DNA of a loved one ….. a thinly veiled introduction to the changing of ones DNA … or the entering of foreign DNA … as a precursor to the former ….. setting the stage for the final act ….. rendering for the first time ever humanity as unredeemable. And why not, people are no longer satisfied to be as God created them ….the thirst to be more or different from how they were created now at  the unquenchable stage.

Hate comes in a lot of forms and its not always at the end of a rifle.

The dissolution of the knowledge of God is the most hateful act of all.

From the words of Jesus himself:

“Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.  Matthew 10:28.

Seek Jesus while there is still time. The world is on disconnect ….. and there is little time left.

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem they shall prosper who love thee”.  Psalm 122:6

June Bride

Image result for june bride

There is just something about June weddings. Sure, one can be married any month of the year. But June and weddings somehow just seem to go together. You know, like bread and butter, ice cream and cake, Champagne and caviar  (just some of the choices for wedding dessert depending on how rich or poor you might be) but regardless of menu selection for some reason or other June just seems to be the perfect month for tying the knot.

How many of you know that God is into weddings and June weddings in particular? Not that he will bless you any less if you’re married in say August or September, it’s just that …. well, for his wedding …. he seems to prefer June.  And, I can hear many of you even now saying, “and, wow, I didn’t even know he was engaged!”  When did that happen?

Well, let me tell you.

It actually goes back a long way. God’s penchant for June weddings. For he himself married Israel during the month of June (Sivan on the Hebrew calendar) when he entered with them into what amounts to a marriage contract, a Ketubah, when the Torah was given at Sinai. This was 50 days after God brought them out of Egypt on Passover. First he freed them, then he married them!   Wow, what a bridegroom, my hero!

So, every year at Shavuot or Pentecost during the month of Sivan it is God’s anniversary you might say. An event so important it is commanded to count 50 days between Passover and Pentecost each year. This is known as the counting of the Omer. (Which also has to do with barley and wheat harvest – but, we will not get in to that today).

But, like a lot of love stories, it gets complicated ….  for Israel broke the terms of the Ketubah and became an unfaithful wife. Yup. Broke his heart. But, because God is a die hard romantic and loves weddings, he foresaw and orchestrated another fabulous wedding ….one which would involve his son, the Lord Jesus Christ …. and the restoration of his own relationship with his unfaithful bride, Israel.

Now this is where the story gets even more cool. Every year at Shavuot (Pentecost), the book of Ruth is read. Yup, Israel (the unfaithful bride) recounts the story of the Gentile woman (Ruth) who becomes the bride of the Hebrew Boaz, the kinsman redeemer. The union of which produced the most famous of all Israel’s kings, King David. Who incidentally, was born (and died) on this very same date (Shavuot).  Talk about provoking to jealousy! (Romans 11:14)   ….. Every year, through the reading of the book of Ruth the unfaithful wife (Israel) is reminded of the Gentile woman God used to produce the greatest of Israel’s kings and ultimately, the Lord Jesus Christ himself.

Which leads us back to ….. you guessed it. Pentecost. Like Israel, who was married to the Lord at Pentecost, the church through its birth is likewise engaged to Jesus. And, like his Father before him,  Jesus at the cross first freed his bride (redeemed from sin at Passover) and 50 days later became espoused  or engaged to her when the church was born on this very same date.  Wow!  What a bridegroom, my hero!

So as you can see, the month of June or Sivan on the Hebrew calendar is a very important month. So much so, that God orchestrated two other very important events during this very special month. The rebirth of Israel on the 5th of Iyar (May 14, 1948). And, the restoration of Jerusalem on the 28th of Sivan (June 11, 1967). Two events that are crucial to the continuation of this love story. For the stage is set for the return of the unfaithful wife to the Lord (after the 7 year tribulation) and the catching away of the church at the rapture for the wedding supper of the Lamb … an event which will precede the 7 year tribulation.

There is a lot of talk among believers about the timing of the rapture … the catching away of the Church in to heaven where she will be married to the Lord Jesus Christ who has been patiently waiting for her for the past 2,000 years.  Will it be a September wedding? September is such a nice month. The feast of Trumpets would make an awesome day for a wedding. How about a December wedding? Chanukah would be nice too. And, while any of the above would make a great day for the Lord to come for his bride ….. I have to say, June is perhaps just a little bit better. So, much so that the devil has hijacked it for his own. Instead of June Bride, it’s June Pride ….. June, the month last year that gay marriage was made legal. But, I digress.

So, if you’re looking for the Lord to come …. anticipating the day for the wedding of all weddings …. Shavuot (Pentecost) is June 11. Just a few days away. Oh, my ….. and, I have not yet picked out a dress!  No worries …. Jesus has it covered. Every thing the bride needs he will provide ….. that’s how much he loves ….. his June Bride.

“Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready. Fine linen bright and clean was given to her to wear. Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of the Saints”. Revelation 19:7-8

*Not setting dates …. just sharing a few thoughts ….. whenever the Lord comes for his bride will be of course, the perfect time.

Rebellion, the Final Stage

Image result for boy and girl babies

“So God created man in his own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them” Genesis 1:27

Remember when life was much more simple? When blue meant boy and pink meant girl. Not that my youngest daughter with her big blue eyes didn’t look just as pretty in a blue dress as she did a pink. But, you know what I mean. It was pretty much standard. Blue for boys, pink for girls. Nothing hard about that.

Not so much today. What used to be simple is now very, very complicated. Sure, for the last few thousand years or so it may have worked to take a peak inside the diaper if you weren’t sure if that cutie pie with the tousled curls was a girl or a boy, but you sure can’t count on that today. Today physical anatomy has little today with ones sexual identity. It’s how one feels that counts. Today you may feel like a boy and tomorrow, a girl ….. and, some days a little bit of both!”  And while the older ones among us may find that quite laughable be sure the younger generation does not as they are currently being indoctrinated in to this nonsense at a pace that can only be described as feverish.

So, what gives? Why this sudden push to radically change the culture? That’s a good question and one that deserves some serious thought.

Let me start off by saying that this is not about hate. It really (in my opinion) has less to do with the very small number of the population that is actually transgender and more to do with those who have suddenly found an effective tool for advancing a much deeper and darker agenda. For in all reality transgenders  have probably been using the bathroom of their choice all along with no one really noticing or caring.

Suddenly, though it’s being made into a huge issue and one that must be addressed from the highest level of government immediately and without delay which should cause any thinking person to ask themselves why. For if transgenderism was really the issue it would be simple enough to provide a family or unisex restroom (which already exist in many places of business) instead of opening up restrooms to the opposite sex  creating the opportunity for potential abuse. But they really don’t care which is why this argument is falling on deaf ears. For it has nothing to do with restrooms or the comfort of transgenders. What it does is provide a weapon to use against those who would oppose their agenda ….  and a very effective weapon it is indeed.

REBELLION, the final stage.

We live in a time when human history as we know it is rapidly coming to a close. And the spiritual war (of which we are a part) is intensifying beyond what most of us could have ever imagined. The enemy has launched a “no-holds barred” attack against the Creator by leading the most prized of his creation (humanity) in to open rebellion against him. Make no mistake about it – at its most fundamental this is an attack against God. Which is why no argument to the contrary will persuade them. For they are determined to once and for all throw off what they see as fetters or chains.  No longer will they allow themselves to be defined by what they perceive to be an archaic view of sexuality based on birth anatomy or an outdated religious system – and, anyone (Christians) or anything (Bible) that says otherwise will absolutely, positively not be tolerated.  Which is why, (like Nazi Germany) they will  ultimately seek a final solution to the problem –  of which demonizing and marginalizing Christians is just the first step. For in order to silence God, they must first silence us. Or so they think.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but this is not a winnable war. At least not for now. When Jesus comes it will all be settled, so take heart. But, until then, we can expect more of the same and worse. And although that sounds extremely grim be assured that Jesus is using the situation for his greater glory and for the awakening of the luke-warm Laodicean Church of which we are presently a part.

In the Meantime

How then should we live?  Good question. First of all, seek the counsel of the Holy Spirit. How God leads me may not be how God leads you. Shop at Target, not shop at Target???? For me, I choose not to. Not because of transgenders, but because of the heavy hand of government and the potential for abuse businesses like Target set us up for. Talk to people about this issue rationally and with love. Pray that God will exercise mercy on a generation that has rejected him. But, above all stand firm in what you believe. And, then again – when all is said and done – stand.

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem they shall prosper who love thee” Psalm 122:6

This is the core of rebellion.  A purposeful change of the set times and laws as established by God particularly in regard to male and female – the unique union of which produces not only off-spring but the joining of two to become one.

We live in a unique period of history.  There are those who say that time goes on as it always has and that nothing is going to change – (2 Peter 3:4).  By this they assume (by the very nature of natural law) that everything will continue as it always has – Yet, at the same time they are working feverishly to abolish it.

Time Up

Image result for times square ball drop 2016 

“For they have forsaken me  and have made this a place of foreign gods …. they have filled this place with the blood of the innocent. They have built the high places of Baal to burn their sons in the fire …so beware, the days are coming …I will make them fall by the sword of their enemies, at the hands of those who seek their lives …” Jeremiah 19:4-7

Isis has a thirst for blood. American blood in particular – boasting recently that “American blood tastes best”.  A statement (based  on the verse above) that we can be assured is a promise as much as it is a threat. For the Lord has determined their success. It is time.

On April 19th of this year Times Square in mid-town Manhattan will boast a replica of the Temple of Baal. An ancient structure you may never have heard of unless you read the Bible or frequent the often dry pages of architectural journals of the ancient world. With plans for duplicating this structure in a thousand different cities around the world, the temple of Baal will enjoy a notoriety that it has not known since the last fire was kindled in its blood thirsty belly several thousand years ago. But, alas, its day has come.

It is not by accident that the date of April 19th was chosen. For it is a very special date in the world of the occult with implications far and beyond what many of us might think. One of my favorite blogs End of the American Dream has done an excellent job detailing this fascinating information which you can read here.

It is also not by accident that Times Square has been chosen.

Central to American life and culture for the past few decades what better place to erect an image to the ultimate god of self than the hedonistic hub we call Times Square. Often referred to as “the crossroads of the world”, “the center of the universe”, “the heart of the great white way”, and “the heart of the world” (per Wikipedia) it is obvious that the 50 foot arch that will be raised there on April 19th will be right at home –  a god among gods – you might say – amidst the bright lights, advertisements and amusements that have come to represent every facet of American life in this past century.  This quote from James Traub, ‘The Devils Playground: A Century of Pleasure and Profit in Times Square – says, it well.

“Times Square quickly (after world war 1) became New York’s *agora, a place to gather, to await great tidings and to celebrate them, whether a world series or a presidential election” 

For this reason, Times Square has become America’s Town Square marking not only who we are, but where we are. And from the looks of things – time for America is up.

A Gesture of Defiance

Image result for temple of bel   Temple of Baal

“For they have forsaken me  and have made this a place of foreign gods …. they have filled this place with the blood of the innocent. They have built the high places of Baal to burn their sons in the fire …so beware, the days are coming …I will make them fall by the sword of their enemies, at the hands of those who seek their lives …” Jeremiah 19:4-7

“The past is never really the past …. it is in fact, our future”  (my words).

Truth is sometimes stranger than fiction. History twisting and turning upon itself in ways we often don’t expect – recoiling upon itself like a serpent sleeping in the sun.  A faintly beating pulse that continues to shape the present out of the past and back again.

The all-new Temple of Baal …. coming to a city near you.

<><><><><><><><><>

In what has been termed “a gesture of defiance” the Institute of Digital Technology has teamed up with Harvard University, the University of Oxford and Dubai’s Museum of the Future to create a 50 foot replica of the entrance to the Temple of Baal that will be erected in Times Square sometime next month.

The Temple of Baal (as you may remember) is the 2,000  year old structure located in Palmyra, Syria that was destroyed by Isis last year. Considered a “cultural treasure” it will be replicated in Times Square next month as well Trafalgar Square in London and ultimately in a thousand different cities around the world.

Oh, and its also the place God hated for its practice of child sacrifice.

I don’t know about you, but this strikes me as a bit strange.

Sure its an ancient structure.  And no one is suggesting any one go about destroying ancient artifacts large or small ….. but some how ….. this just doesn’t sit right. It seems a bit over kill. Over the top. You know what I mean? The Temple of Baal …. of all things. And, why now?

There’s something else at work here and I think I know exactly what it is. And, I have a very strong hunch it has a whole lot less to do with defiance of Isis than it does defiance of God.

For the same spirit that called for the blood of children then …. calls for the blood of children now.  

#Hashtag Shout Out Your Abortion …….

all that’s lacking is a monument.

——————————–

Because of sin, the past is also our future. Only through Jesus can we break free from the sin we find ourselves so entangled in. The tricks of the enemy are old. What he does is repackage them for a new generation. Don’t be fooled. Real freedom, real life is found in Jesus. Only he can set you free …. only he can give new life ….. the enemy calls for the blood of your children ….. but, God gave the life of his Son, for you …. make sure you know him today.

Descent into Chaos

Image result for obama tango

While the world was mourning Brussels the President was busy dancing Tango in Argentina.  Here he can be seen with his dancing partner in one of the slow controlled moves that Tango is so well known for. Dramatic and precise. You can see the concentration that it takes to perform these tight and fluid moves by the expression on his face. So incredibly in sync when performed correctly all else it might be said  …. is simply chaos.

The world is rapidly descending in to chaos. The bombings in Brussels and Paris unfortunate but necessary steps in the execution of the performance    …..  and for that reason ….. as he well knows …..

 the dance must go on.

Eyes Wide Open

     Image result for oculus world

Have you seen the strange winged creature known as Oculus that sits at the base of the One World Trade Tower?  Just recently completed, it will serve as a transportation hub for the World Trade Center and is designed (according to Wikipedia) with a space at the top which will open each year like an eye during the autumn equinox allowing a shaft of sunlight to shine in illuminating the footprints of the world trade towers in commemoration of 9/11. It is also designed with wings supposedly representing a bird in flight.

The word oculus comes from the latin and means eye.. In architecture, it is the term used for a circular opening, especially of the apex of a dome.

It’s kind of interesting, when I googled the term (oculus) I  found that it is also the name of a  virtual reality company whose goal (according to the article) is to design equipment making it possible to “experience anything, anywhere through the power of virtual reality”.

Wow, can you imagine how this would change the perception of just about everything? And this is not science fiction – this is now.

EYES

The Bible has a lot to say about eyes. So does the occult.  From the ancient Egyptians with their eye of Horus, eye of Ra to the mystery and esoteric religions that after many centuries still exist today, the eye has long been an important symbol in representing the goals toward which they have long been working. Here we see the eye or oculus positioned at the top of the dome in this Masonic symbol . We also see it every day (or at least here in America, we do) on the back of the one dollar bill.

Image result for celebrities pyramid and eye

It is also a popular symbol in pop culture today. You see it every where. The pyramid around the eye or the covering of one eye leaving only one eye exposed.

Image result for celebrities pyramid and eye

Why the Eye?

As you can see, the eye is an important symbol to the mystery religions and will ultimately be used in the establishment of the new world order. But, why the eye? Why has this become the primary symbol.  Good question!

In my study over the years, I have come to recognize that it has long been the goal of the evil one (Satan) to take for himself any thing that belongs to God in order to bring glory to himself  He is a liar in the first degree and comes as the Bible tells us in John 10:10 only to “steal, kill and destroy.”  Therefore, if the eye is an important symbol to him – and the Bible has a lot to say about eyes – we might want to ask ourselves why.

Jesus said in Matthew 6:22 –

 “The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy your whole body will be full of light”

Interesting. The eyes, the lamp of the body. According to Jesus, it is only when the eyes are healthy that the body is full of light. In other words, spiritual wholeness. Something that can only happen when Jesus is that light. Any other light is not light at all – but darkness – and darkness disguised as light is the worst deception of all.

A Speck in the Eye

I have to give my daughter Seven Stars credit for this. The subject came up the other day based on an incident that happened in the middle of the night when my four year old granddaughter came in to her moms room crying and complaining that there was something in her eye. She had it so tightly closed that it was near impossible to get her to open it until she calmed down. By then her tears had washed away anything that might have been irritating her eye. For  as we all know, it only takes a tiny speck in the eye to cause serious discomfort.

The Eye of God

Have you ever thought that God might have an eye?  Figuratively speaking, we know that he does. Many verses support this. For example –

“For this is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘After the glorious one has sent me against the nations that have plundered you – for whoever touches you (Israel) touches the apple of his eye. Zechariah 2:8

“For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong  on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him. ….2 Chronicles 16:9

We know from the Bible that God is Spirit so the eye (as mentioned above) is figurative.  But, what if something in creation, something he created was the tangible expression of that eye?

To follow this line of thinking, lets go back to Genesis chapter 1 where God seperates the waters above from the waters below – at the center of which dry land  (and seas) appeared.

The earth is said to be made up of 70% water. I could not find an exact calculation of the percentage of water that makes up the eye but, it would (according to one source) be 50 % or greater. So in essence, we could call earth his eye.  Think of it this way – the waters above as the upper lid, the waters below as the lower lid and the dry land at the center as his pupil.

So, when God separated the waters – in a symbolic sense – the eye opened.

Which would make sense. For as the pupil is the center of the eye so is Israel and the accompanying lands of the Bible, the center of the world.

According to the Institute for Creation Research in an article by Henry Morris titled, “The Center of the Earth”  it has been calculated that Israel and the Bible lands themselves comprise the center of the earth.

“The exact center of the earth, insofar as Mr. Woods calculations could determine was found to be near Ankara, the present capital of Turkey at latitude 39 degrees and longitude 34 degrees on the same latitude as Mount Ararat and the same longitude as Jerusalem….. However there is no explicit statement in the Bible requiring the earth’s enter to be precisely at Ararat or Babel or Jerusalem, all of the implications of scriptures in this regard are satisfied if the  center is somewhere in these Bible lands, Interestingly, the earths center at Ankara together with Jerusalem. Ararat and Babylon form an almost perfect square.”.

When God sent the flood in Genesis to wipe out the wicked generation, the blood line defiled by Nephilim, he in essence flooded the eye (his eye – the earth)  with water – closing the eye you might say. For the waters which had once been separated to bring forth dry land now converged to cover every inch of land on the surface of the earth. On these waters a tiny little speck, a wooden ark floated about until dry land once again appeared.  God in his mercy tolerated this event as a speck in his “eye” because although Noah was found righteous in his generation (untainted by Nephilim) he was still a sinful man.

This lends itself to Jesus words when he speaks of a speck in the eye.

“Why do you look at the speck in your brothers eye but do not notice the beam or log in your own eye?”  Matthew 7:3

Never To Be Flooded Again

And we see this time after time in scripture God establishing dry land in the midst of the waters.  A typology or commemoration you might say of the very important event of the flood. Which by the way – God vowed never to do again. Flood the earth – i.e. close his eye or eyes. And, he kept that promise. Even when his son was on the cross God did not close his eyes, but rather turned his back or looked away.

Here are some examples of “dry land” appearing out of the water. As you can see it is an important Biblical concept for we see it over and over again.

1 -At the Exodus – Dry land appeared when the Red Sea was parted facilitating the escape of the Israelites from the Egyptian army.

2- Crossing the Jordan – When the Israelites crossed the Jordan God piled up the waters so that the people crossed over on dry land.

3- The infant Moses – his basket floated in the midst of the river until it was retrieved out of the water by Pharaohs daughter bringing it to dry land.

4- Noah’s ark coming to rest on dry land in the six hundred and first year after the land began to dry.

And more, the ax head that floated on the water, Jesus being baptized in the midst of the Jordan, Jesus and Peter walking on water, John receiving the Revelation from the Island of Patmos in the middle of the sea. Jonah coming up from the deep, (a place symbolic of rebellion) where he was spit by the great fish on to dry land.  Water and blood flowing from the side of Jesus after he was pierced – symbolic of the blood and water on which  Noah’s ark had floated  – just as Jesus, our ark hung on a cross of wood,  and the healing of the blind man with a combination of dirt and spittle (land established in the midst of the waters, you might say.  The opening of the eyes.

(And these are just a few examples  God working in the midst of the waters .. establishing dry land.

The Opening of the Third Eye – Illumination

You will notice that the Bible always speaks of God in the plural when it comes to eyes – in other words, two eyes.  In the occult, you will always see it as one eye. That is because the evil one recognizes that the earth is a symbol of God’s watchful eyes.  He mocks this by utilizing the symbol of the one all seeing eye – like the one on the back of the dollar bill. We are told that this symbolizes the watchful eye of Providence but this could not be further from the truth for the eastern, esoteric and mystery religions will always use one eye as the symbol of illumination which Lucifer, the angel of light would have you to believe is him.

It has become popular in recent years for celebrities to pose with just one eye exposed in recognition of this new age/old lie concept. Illumination by way of the mystery religions.

When Adam and Eve sinned, the Bible says that there eyes were opened  – opened to the knowledge of good and evil. God like any good parent never intended for the crown of creation, the two made in his very own image – to know anything of evil, wickedness or sin. The devil though has convinced people that this was a good thing – the opening of their eyes -sin.  For in their opinion, or as they would have you believe – God was holding out on the good stuff – knowing that if their eyes were opened – they would be like him – like gods!

The Twinkling of an Eye

After the flood, God (as mentioned before) promised that he would never again destroy the world by water – he would never again close his eye or eyes. (Remember this is figurative – when the water flooded the earth it was as if his eye had closed).  Which is why he makes the point of saying in Psalm 121:4-5:

“He who watches Israel never slumbers nor sleeps, the Lord watches over you, he is your shelter right by your side”.

Did you get that? God never closes his eyes. He never sleeps. He never will.  For this reason, it is assured that Israel will never be destroyed. Nor will we. Our salvation (like theirs) is assured for as God’s eyes are always on them – as they are always on us. This is like the Israelites crossing over the Jordan in to the promised land  – there God parted the waters in order for them to cross over on dry land. The water could never overtake them. Just as in Genesis God separated the waters from the waters in order for dry land to appear. And, so it is because what is man but dust — dry land out of the water.

But there is a day coming that the occult world is eagerly waiting for. They know God will never close his eyes ….. but they also know something else is about to occur which they believe will give them the edge. God’s eye is going to blink. And when it does they will be ready.

You have probably heard of the term eyes wide shut. This is the world of the occult. A world of mystery, lies, secrecy, masks, disguises and deception. But one day – when God blinks – that closed eye will open. This is what the Oculus at the World Trade Center represents and is waiting for – a precise time to open – remember, it can only open during the autumn equinox. So, it is with the revealing of the anti-Christ.- it awaits a specific moment in time – in other words, the rapture – the blinking of God’s eye and before you say God would never blink his eye, consider this –

“In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump, for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible and we shall be changed”. 1 Corinthians 15:52

Is a twinkling faster than a blinkling – how fast can you blink an eye?  Uh-huh and just like we are waiting for this day – so are they.

A Question of When

The autumn equinox is a highly occult period of time. I found this in an article titled “The Spiritual Meaning of the Autumn Equinox” –

“The autumn equinox is a mysterious time. It marks an essential passage in the process of enlightenment that is often overlooked, misunderstood and mistaken as dark and heretical ….

 ” …. What was known by the ancients is the part darkness plays in the work of spiritual transformation” –

Did you get that? Known by the ancients. The mystery religions. The part darkness, sin and rebellion (in their twisted minds) play in the world of spiritual transformation. Without which according to their logic there can be no enlightenment or illumination.

It is my humble opinion based on the position of the Oculus at the World Trade Center we are very close to the time that both of us are waiting for.

DESTROYED BY FIRE

Epilogue:  One day this old sin corrupted earth will be destroyed by fire. Never again by water for as it says in Revelation 19:12 –

“His eyes were like a flame of fire. and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except himself.

His eyes a flame of fire. I have a feeling when the time comes (for burning up the earth- in order to create a new heaven and earth)  that God won’t be in need of borrowing a match …… what do you think?

  • Due to length I have not touched on everything that could be said regarding this topic but I hope I have at least provided some food for thought. The day is coming soon when Jesus will return for those who are his. Don’t be caught up in the lie that spiritual transformation is through anyone or anything but him. Jesus, said “You must be born again”.  It is only through the new birth that one can have health or wellness of the soul. All other paths lead to darkness and certain destruction. Be sure that when the time comes for crossing over Jordan (passing from this life) that you are crossing over on dry land — that land, that rock is Jesus.

“Pray for the peace  of Jerusalem they shall prosper who love thee” Psalm 122:6

Watching and waiting with YOU for the soon return of Jesus! Cindy

Jesus, the true Revenant

Image result for jesus nail scarred hands pictures

It looks almost certain that Leonardo DiCaprio will win an Oscar tonight for his grueling portrayal of Hugh Glass, the American fur trapper, explorer and frontiersman who was left for dead in the 1820’s after being severely mauled by a grizzly.  Based on a true story, Glass not only survived the bear attack  but lived to tell the story by crawling and stumbling an amazing 200 miles back to Ft Kiowa in the dead of winter where he sought revenge on the two who had left him for dead with neither weapons nor provisions.

Until this movie came out, I had never heard of Hugh Glass nor the term revenant which is derived from the French revenir and means –

“one who returns after death or a long absence”.

I was thinking about this (the remarkable story of Hugh Glass)  and couldn’t help but think of it in relation to another movie that people are seeing right now, the movie Risen.

ALIVE AND COMING AGAIN

It’s been 2,000 years since Jesus walked the dusty roads of Galilee. His life cut short at the tender age of 33 by a brutal death on a cross. “He saved others,” they (the soldiers) jeered as they peered up at the form above them – a form, so severely beaten as to be barely recognizable as a man- “but, he cannot save himself“.  Just another dead Jew in this god-forsaken place called Judea, they surely thought.

If you saw the movie Risen as I did yesterday. You probably have a feel for what those hardened Roman soldiers, those ministers of death were probably like. Death for them was their 8-5 job. Life was cheap in those days (much like it is in many parts of the middle-East today) and justice was swift – if you want to call it that – and harsh. These guys were no fools, dereliction in their duties would carry a similarly swift penalty. So, when the body of Jesus came up missing three days later, you can bet those assigned to guard his body against those who might have cause to steal it were sweating bullets.

This was the premise of the movie and as you can imagine a furious and desperate search for the body was launched. For the Jewish authorities that wanted him dead knew full well that he had claimed that he would raise his body up in 3 days should he be crucified. Taking no chances, they bribed those who had been charged with guarding his body in to admitting that they had been sleeping (which they were not – on fear of the death penalty themselves) and the search was on – probably the biggest manhunt in history for the Jewish authorities (as well as the Roman) were not about to let a rag tag bunch of Jews (his followers)  make them out as fools.

Of course, they never did find the body of Jesus for he was indeed alive showing himself to many eye witnesses over a period of 40 days before ascending in to heaven. But, not before making the startling promise that in the same way he was leaving he would also someday be coming back.

Jesus, the true Revenant

I can just imagine how surprised folks were when Hugh Glass came walking in one day. They must have swallowed their tongues. Especially, the two who had knowingly left him behind to die!  Interesting, the perseverance this man had – fueled by revenge – yet, forgiving at least the younger of the men and letting them both go free from the wrath they both deserved (the true ending of the story unlike the fictionalized one in the movie).  All the more interesting, when you consider his name  – Hugh, which is derived from the Germanic and means “heart, mind, spirit”  – and  Glass – “something of shiny material“.  Indicative, you might say of the almost ghostly reappearance of the man that everyone believed to be dead.

And while the world has been stunned by the incredible tale of Hugh Glass, it pales in comparison to the real revenant Jesus Christ. The evidence for which (his life, death, burial, and resurrection) is beyond refute. And, just like he promised, he is coming again

Therefore, don’t be one who is caught by surprise. By then, it is will be far too late. The Bible says that today is the day of salvation. Therefore, if you hear his voice do not harden your heart.

If you have made that decision today, please let me know. I (and all of the readers here at Heaven Bound) would love to rejoice with you!

And, as always –

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem they shall prosper who love thee” Psalm 122:6

Watching and waiting with YOU for the soon return of Jesus!  Cindy
